Subject Frank was born 1814 or 1815 per censuses, son of Robert & Ann (HOLMES) THOMPSON. Robert was son of English Immigrant, Thomas THOMPSON and wife Nelly AGAN, early settlers in the Saxapahaw area of Orange/Alamance Co. In 1848, Frank married first cousin once removed, Eliza J RUSSELL, daughter of John Craig & Rachel (THOMPSON) RUSSELL. Rachel was a daughter of Frank's Uncle John THOMPSON and Jennet ANDERSON (my ancestors). Both Rachel and her father-in-law, Alexander RUSSELL are buried at Hawfields Church, SW if the town of Mebane in Alamance Co. I've found no death date or burial place for Frank THOMPSON, and had been wondering what became of the family after the 1860 Census, which showed Frank as age 46 and Eliza as age 32; their son Alex was 8 in that census.
The NC families lost track of Frank's family, so it is particularly good to hear from someone of that line. You have lots of cousins in NC, and throughout the US.
